Review from @617musicreviews on IG:
The new one from singer/songwriter @departmentoftangents is a self-dubbed “misanthropic folk” delight. We first heard this track on a murky afternoon while traveling westbound on Storrow Dr.--maybe it was the bustling traffic, maybe it was the weather, maybe it was the feeling of fatigue after a long day, but in that moment, something about this song seemed to synchronize with the outside world. Comfortably supported by a crisp acoustic guitar and a perfectly aligned organ, Zaino vocalizes what most of us only think about. He sings, “Are people worth redeeming? Maybe some, but not this one” and “Sometimes I watch the world explode inside my head and cheer the dead” with quintessential folk tonality. The sense of foreboding aside, it’s this kind of raw honesty and genuineness that elevates this track, secures it as memorable, and demands that it be heard.

lyrics

In A Daydream

I’m just a gentle soul
Sometimes I watch the world explode
Inside my head
And I cheer the dead

In winter traffic speeding
Are people worth redeeming
Maybe sum
But not this one

In a daydream
I erase myself and you
Had our day but now we’re through
In a daydream
I race to justify
All the work I never tried to do

I can love the one
But maybe not the whole
You are warm
But the world is cold

I have memories
That I hold dear
But so do they
The ones I fear

In a daydream
I erase myself and you
Had our day but now we’re through
In a daydream
I race to justify
All the work I never tried to do
